International Union of Marine Insurance (IUMI) 2019

Sun, 15 Sep 2019 – Wed, 18 Sep 2019

The roots of IUMI, in its present form, can be traced to the later part of the 19th century, a time of continuous increase in the volume of international trade and consumption and of constantly improving communications. The transition from sail to steam was already under way, leading to a greater need for marine insurance, especially cargo insurance, both ocean and inland.

Until the mid-19th century, most marine insurance was placed in local markets. The developments in international trade and shipping, however, gave rise to more international transactions. New markets were emerging and there was a demand for uniformity in insurance cover, not least by banks and clients.


  • IUMI provides a forum to discuss and exchange ideas of common interest to marine insurers and reinsurers
  • IUMI protects and advances the interests of its membership
  • IUMI maintains a worldwide communication network to exchange views and ideas on matters of marine insurance and reinsurance which are then disseminated to all interested parties including the shipping industry, surveyors and the legal sector.
  • IUMI lobbies to defend its members' interests with organisations such as the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and other specialist agencies.
